Run #3 - Freycinet Circuits
Distance: 11 km Hazards circuit or 29 km Mt Graham circuit
Date: Sunday 26th June 2016
Description: Both circuits will be run simultaneously in a clockwise direction.
The Freycinet Peninsula is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations in the world. With 29 km of exceptional track interspersed with pristine beaches this trail run will be hard to race with the temptation to stop for a swim or take in the view!
We have two options for this trail run with a shorter 11 km circuit via Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach, and the full 29 km circuit taking in Mt Graham and Cooks Beach. If this is your first trail run we strongly suggest you do the shorter circuit. We cannot take walkers on the long circuit due to the time it takes to complete that distance. If entering the 29km run you need to be capable of completing the course in under 5:30hrs.
We recommend the 29 km run for experienced trail runners, the course is rough underfoot and is marked only with cairns in some parts of the track
Compulsory equipment is required for the 29km loop and includes: a thermal top, a space blanket, water (bladder or drink bottle), food (energy bar/gel/chocolate bar), a head torch and a roller bandage. A waterproof top and additional warm clothes/beanie/gloves are also suggested in case the weather gods do not smile on us!
There are many camping and accomodation options within Freycinet National Park and nearby Coles Bay if you wish to make a weekend of it - highly recomended!!!
Entry fee: $45 per person
Entry Cap: there is a cap of 100 runners per event (so enter early!!)
